Complete the following: The difference quotient for f at the point where x = a gives the slope of the ________ line that passes through __________.

To determine

To fill: The statement in the blank, “The difference quotient for f at the point where x=a

gives the slope of the______ line that passes through______.”

Explanation

The difference quotient is given by formula:

Difference Quotient=f(a+h)f(a)h

Slope of secant is equal to the difference quotient.

The value of the function at x=a

is f(a)

hence the coordinates will be (a,f(a))

and for x
